Zambia gets its first contactless payment card through Absa

Absa has rolled out Zambia’s first contactless payment card as the COVID-19 pandemic quickens digital strategy implementation, the bank’s CEO for Zambia Mizinga Melu tells The Africa Report.

The Visa debit card, launched on 17 July, allows customers to make small convenience purchases by tapping the card on a point-of-sale machine, says Melu. “There’s no need to touch anyone or anything.”
